Today’s find at Spitalfields Antique market is this amazing book ‘Popular Art in Britain’ by Noel Carrington, ilustrated by Clarke Hutton and published by Penguin Books in 1945. Here is an image of the cover as well as a few of my favourite plates. I particularly like plate number 5, Tom King Highwayman. Somehow I can’t imagine him frightening anyone enough to part with their valuables!
